Chandigarh Municipal Corporation Gears Up for Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor Elections

Chandigarh, February 23, 2024: The democratic process in the Union Territory of Chandigarh is set to witness a pivotal moment as the Office of the Deputy Commissioner, U.T., Chandigarh, gears up to conduct elections for the crucial positions of Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation. This development follows the recent landmark judgment and directives from the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in Civil Appeal No. 2874 of 2024 and SLP (Civil) No-2998/2024.

In a significant turn of events, Sh. Kuldeep Kumar has been rightfully declared as the Mayor of the Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh, aligning with the legal stipulations laid out in Section 38 of the Punjab Municipal Act, 1976. This section mandates the election of a Chairperson, commonly known as the Mayor, along with other members, including the Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor.

The election meeting is scheduled to take place on February 27, 2024 (Tuesday), at 10:00 AM in the Assembly Hall of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation, with Sh. Kuldeep Kumar, the newly declared Mayor, presiding as the authority. The agenda primarily revolves around the crucial election of the Senior Deputy Mayor and Deputy Mayor, a process integral to the democratic functioning of the Corporation.

This development is not only a legal imperative but also underscores the commitment of the Chandigarh Municipal Corporation to uphold democratic values and ensure the smooth functioning of the local governance structure. The involvement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and the Punjab and Haryana High Court adds a layer of judicial oversight, reinforcing the adherence to legal processes and transparency.

In parallel, the directives from the Hon’ble Punjab and Haryana High Court in CWP No.1260-2024 and CWP No.1350-2024 emphasize the importance of security measures during the election process. The Chandigarh Police will play a crucial role in ensuring that the proceedings remain peaceful and in compliance with the law, maintaining the sanctity of the democratic exercise.

This electoral event signifies a critical juncture in Chandigarh’s local governance, embodying the principles of democracy, transparency, and adherence to legal norms. The Secretary, Municipal Corporation, Chandigarh, will subsequently issue detailed election procedures, ensuring strict compliance with all court orders and legislative provisions. As Chandigarh navigates this democratic milestone, the impact lies not only in the legalities but in fostering a governance culture that prioritizes accountability, fairness, and civic participation.
